No budget, no pay

No budget, no pay

Every business, every home has a budget. Even if we don't write it down, we all know we have to balance our spending and income and make decisions about what we can afford.

Making a budget for our country is one of Congress' most important jobs. But it hasn't passed a full budget or required spending bills on time since 1995.

One answer: The "No Budget, No Pay" bill proposed by No Labels (it's one of 12 common sense ideas for making Congress work). Under this proposal if Congress doesn't pass a budget on time, lawmakers don't get their paychecks.

If your member of Congress has signed on to "No Budget, No Pay," thank them and congratulate them. If they haven't, now is the time to let them know.

So far 77 congressmen have signed on. Has yours? Find out at this link: http://action.nolabels.org/bill/no-budget-no-pay/
